Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

‘Miles and More’ discounted rewards for July launched

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

It’s time for our monthly round-up of discounted redemption routes available via the Lufthansa Miles & More programme.

The July list of discounted Miles & More redemptions from the UK is here.  You must book by July 31th for travel by, in most cases, August 16th.

As I say each month, given how high the taxes are, the European redemptions are still not great value.   You also need to select direct flights to get the discounted price – London to Munich to Cologne does not give you the discounted London – Cologne price, for example.

The long-haul Economy destinations are not the greatest deals either.  Business class redemptions, on the other hand, do offer genuine value.

The following long-haul routes are reduced for July and early August, often sharply, in Business Class:

  • Algiers
  • Beijing
  • Casablanca
  • Denver
  • Dubai
  • Hong Kong
  • Marrakech
  • Montreal
  • Osaka
  • Philadelphia
  • Seoul
  • Shanghai
  • Tokyo
  • Tunis
  • Washington

Whilst Lufthansa’s business class is not the greatest (unless you get a 747-800 with the new fully flat seat), you will also get the discounted prices on Austrian and Swiss where they fly the same route.  Austrian is rolling out its fully flat business class seat and I think Swiss is now 100% fully flat.

    Off topic Raffles. I’ve got about 300k avios and a 2-4-1 voucher thanks to your great tips. I need to go to Lagos in August but there is zero reward availability.
    I know it’s peak season, but from your experience, is it worth holding out for a sale or last minute reward seat availability?
